Yes, it's the spinlock_try_test on

Some of the tests results have disappeared though, and I no longer see
crashes (exit code 139, which is I believe a SIGSEGV). (All the intel-linux
results are gone, for example.) I only see one test failure due to a stubbed
pthread_mutex_trylock and one link failure due to a missing trylock.

The Sun failures will hopefully clear as soon as you commit the -lrt fix. (I
only have access to Windows at the moment, and can't test it, sorry. I
suggest you go ahead with it; I'll watch the table for breakages :-)
